You may recall that a few weeks back, bet365 Sport came up with a couple of great offers for the Cheltenham Festival.

Well, the good news for punters is that those offers are back and this time you can use them on arguably the biggest and most famous horse race of the year, the Grand National at Aintree in Liverpool, which takes place in early April.  

Back in 2019, Tiger Roll became the first horse since Red Rum to win back-to-back Grand Nationals and last year it was Rachael Blackmore who made history when becoming the first female jockey to win the race on Henry De Bromhead’s Minella Times.

There are some really intriguing options in the Ante Post markets for this year’s race and before we take a look at some of them, let’s first learn a bit more about these two offers from bet365 Sport.

Get up to €100 in Bet Credits for new customers at bet365 Bet365 Review
Min deposit €5 Up to €100 in Bet Credits
Bet Credits available for use upon settlement of bets to value of qualifying deposit. Min odds, bet and payment method exclusions apply. Returns exclude Bet Credits stake. Time limits and T&Cs apply. The bonus code BET247 can be used during registration, but does not change the offer amount in any way.

Cheltenham Festival Free Bets at Bet365

Best Odds Guarantee

With the Best Odds Guarantee for the 2022 Grand National, you can take the ante post price on your selection in the NRNB market on win and each way fixed odds selections.

Then, if on race day, the odds on your horse either shortens or lengthens, you don’t need to worry as you will be paid out at the highest price out of the price you took when you placed the bet and the runner’s starting price.

For example, if you back a horse at 12-1 in the NRNB market and on the race day, it starts at 10/1, then you will be paid out at 12/1. However, if you back a horse at 12/1 and on race day its starting price is 16/1, then you will be paid out at 16/1.

Non-Runner No Bet

Just as the site offered this bonus for Ante-Post bets made on the Cheltenham Festival, you can also get this offer for any 2022 Grand National bet you place on the NRNB Win or Each Way markets.

This means if you back a horse to win the 2022 Grand National in the market above and on the day, it is a non-runner, rather than lose your bet, bet365 will refund your stake money back to you.

If you include a selection in a multiple bet and it does not run, then instead of your bet losing, that selection on your bet will be deemed a non-runner.

Both of the offers above come with terms and conditions attached as outlined below.
